The Cubs are rolling with a pretty standard lineup for Game 2 against the Pirates, with all the usual suspects at all their usual positions. Yes, Willson Contreras is in there for what is almost certainly his final game in a Cubs uniform at Wrigley Field, but he’s not behind the plate. This is going to be an emotional game.
As usual, we’ll have your full Pre-Gamin’ post closer to game time (1:20 CT).
